Win A Safety 1st “Summer Road Trip Safety” Basket

CONTESTS | | July 15, 2009 at 9:36 pm



As we’re in the midst of summer travel season, Safety 1st is offering a “Summer Road Trip Safety” basket to one lucky reader! Summer travel is fun and exciting, but it is important to first ensure the safety of your little ones in the back seat before you are able to sit back and relax.

The basket includes items from Safety 1st’s ProGrade line, all of which are crash tested by the Safety 1st team of certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians. ProGrade items include the See Baby Soft Mirror (for the backseat headrest), the Secure View Mirror (for the rear view mirror), the Soft Solution Roller Shade, the famous “Baby on Board” window sign, and a $25 gas gift card to fill your tank!  To enter simply post about your summer travel plans.

Also, for those of you attending BlogHer in Chicago, be sure to stop by the Safety 1st booth to learn about the latest development in child safety. Side impact crashes are by far the most harmful type of collision for children; and Safety 1st has developed Air Protect, a groundbreaking new car seat technology to help protect against this terrifying threat.  Safety 1st will be giving away the Complete Air car seat, the first car seat available with Air Protect, so make sure you stop by and enter to win!

To learn more about Air Protect, visit Thanks to Mom Generations for offering the readers of Mommy Niri another fabulous prize.
